  1. ncbi request reprint Ischemia opens neuronal gap junction hemichannels
    Roger J Thompson
    Department of Psychiatry and Brain Research Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia V6T 2B5, Canada
    Science 312:924-7. 2006
    ..Both the current and dye flux were blocked by inhibitors of hemichannels. Therefore, hemichannel opening contributes to the profound ionic dysregulation during stroke and may be a ubiquitous component of ischemic neuronal death...

    Roger J Thompson
    Department of Psychiatry and Brain Research Centre, University of British Columbia, 2211 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver, BC V6T 2B5, Canada
    Science 322:1555-9. 2008
    ..We conclude that Px1 hemichannel opening is triggered by NMDAR stimulation and can contribute to epileptiform seizure activity...

    Brian A MacVicar
    Brain Research Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada
    Trends Neurosci 33:93-102. 2010
    ..Novel functions for the pannexin channels are likely to be discovered as current understanding of how they are regulated in physiological and pathological situations improves...

    Roger J Thompson
    Department of Psychiatry and the Brain Research Center, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Channels (Austin) 2:81-6. 2008
    ..Additionally, pannexin-1 appears to play a role in neuronal death. Hemichannels form a novel and unique class of ion channels that likely have diverse physiological and pathophysiological roles in the nervous system...

    Charles P K Lai
    Departments of Cellular and Physiological Sciences and Psychiatry, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Cancer Res 67:1545-54. 2007
    ..Altogether, we conclude that the loss of pannexin expression may participate in the development of C6 gliomas, whereas restoration of Panx1 plays a tumor-suppressive role...
